Mitalee and the art of grooming.








Mitalee, " "It's a good day for a thorough bath!"










 Mitalee, " Must. Get. In. Between . Each. Toe!"









Mitalee, " Abrupt. Stop. Hmmm. I do believe I am hearing the click, click, clicking of that camera!"










Mitalee, " Yoohoo!!  LP!!  Can you hear the garden calling you?!"










Mitalee, " It's important that I encourage other hobbies, otherwise, it does get to be a bit much!"










The dahlias are blooming now. In the Vancouver garden world, dahlias are known as late bloomers, which means they begin to bloom toward the end of the summer. Our human loves them!  This particular dahlia, is  as big as a dinner plate. Magnificent!









Have a Terrific Tuesday!
See you soon.

  3. Mitalee, you are master of grooming! And good idea to encourage other hobbies to LP. That'll keep click clicks away...at least while you take a bath, hopefully :-)
    What a beautiful photo of dahlia! Happy Tuesday!

  6. Very important that pretty kitties do a thorough job grooming themselves! We didn't realize you had such a floofy tail.

    We love dahlias, too. (Well, the human loves all flowers to be honest :)
